On a sunny Oct. 19 morning in Lobatse, Botswana, St. Mary’s Pre-School was alive with vibrant colors and joyful laughter as they celebrated “Culture Day” with boundless enthusiasm. This special day was all about embracing the rich tapestry of Botswana’s heritage and instilling a sense of cultural pride in the hearts of the young students.

The festivities began with an introduction to traditional foods, art, crafts, and musical instruments. Each child proudly explained their outfit or the dish they brought, fostering a sense of cultural pride and diversity.

The highlight of the day was a captivating traditional dance performance. With rhythmic music, the children danced gracefully, filling the air with laughter and joy. Teachers and parents joined in, bridging generations through tradition.

Culture Day left a lasting impression, instilling in the children a deep appreciation for their culture. It was a day of learning, sharing, and unity, creating proud ambassadors of Botswana’s heritage among the young generation.
